Description of problem:
RHEL3_8, seems to be fixed in U9

I thought up2date --undo was deprecated.  However on the latest
x86 up2date it still appears as an option

[root@dhcp231-70 root]# cat /etc/redhat-release
Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS release 3 (Taroon Update 8)
[root@dhcp231-70 root]# uname -a
Linux dhcp231-70.rdu.redhat.com 2.4.21-47.ELsmp #1 SMP Wed Jul 5 20:38:41 EDT 2006 i686 i686 i386 GNU/Linux
[root@dhcp231-70 root]# up2date --undo
An error has occurred:

    ret = up2date.undo()

    ret = up2date.undo()

[root@dhcp231-70 root]# rpm -qa | grep up2date
[root@dhcp231-70 root]#

however on x86_64 it is deprecated..
[root@cwelton-64 root]# up2date --undo
This feature is deprecated and no longer functional
[root@cwelton-64 root]# rpm -qa | grep up2date
[root@cwelton-64 root]#
